Flamin’ Groovies might have seemed like the right band at the wrong time when they emerged from San Francisco in the late ’60s. At a time when other Bay Area bands were stretching out with endless solos and taking on the profound responsibilities of saving the world with their songs, the Groovies stubbornly went back to the garage to craft a style of music that evoked early rock & roll, with short, punchy and catchy power-pop songs. A few years ago, singer-guitarists Cyril Jordan and Chris Wilson re-formed the band and started basking in the long-overdue attention they rarely received in their ’70s heyday. Not only are the duo still cranking out past classics such as the cautionary drug-abuse tale “Slow Death” and the heartbreakingly determined pop gem “Shake Some Action” but they have finally released a new album, Fantastic Plastic, which bursts with lively tunes such as “Crazy Macy” and “Let Me Rock.”
